Enlightenment on Our “Institutions of Enlightment”

One thought on “Enlightenment on Our “Institutions of Enlightment””

  1. Thank you for this. You articulately defend the ‘new vocabulary’ of the Millenial generation. And it is so important to recognize that this is not ‘infantilization’, this is deeply-engrained bigotry. We have a responsibility to address it. In many conversations I have with people not on college campuses, I am shocked to see how distorted peoples’ views are of the happenings on them. Many assume that college kids are just complaining and whining about how hard life is. But we are trying to effect change on a societal scale. These people don’t understand ‘microaggression’, ‘trigger warnings’, ‘rape culture’. They just think there’re a bunch of rich kids being whiny.
